This pretty black and white Flower Embroidery Pattern features a bunch of gracefully curving flowers and leaves. There are some five petal flowers and a flower that looks to be a tulip, as well as a few types of leaves.
I really love these old embroidery pattern and line drawings; they can be used for so many things. These old line drawings are easy enough to trace and make perfect transfers for furniture which can then be embellished with paint. Of course this would also look lovely used for its original purpose, as an embroidery transfer.
This one came from the same 1860’s Ladies Hand Knitting book as the knitting lesson image I shared with you about a week ago (found here).
